Maria and Gary are simply great! they had a lot of good suggestions for us, where to eat, shop... always friendly and enthusiastic. Their apt is beautiful, super-clean, spacious. I'd love to come back soon if it would be possible so I higly reccomend to stay with them when you're in the delicious Merida.
We actually stayed in Casa Bonita, another one of the properties that Maria and Gary manage. The house is just as it looks in the pictures. Not overly luxurious, but very comfortable. The kitchen is quite spacious and very functional. The pool is small, but nice to splash around in and relax. We actually spent quite a bit of time there. The location is a bit too far from downtown to walk, though we did walk to downtown one early morning. Most of the time you will probably need a taxi. No big deal. The street is pretty quiet. Gary and Maria were quite attentive. Once we were in the place, they left us alone but when I called once about something, they were available. Just as it should be. Before we arrived, Maria offered to give us a ride from the airport to the house. They charged us $150 pesos to do that, which I figure was about twice what a taxi would have cost. However, it was nice to have Gary waiting for us right in the airport. Gary then took us for a small drive-through tour of the city, which was good. So the pick-up service was actually worth the bit extra that we paid for the ride. Thanks Maria and Gary!
We stayed in another apartment as the one pictures describe (I would say within the same compound though) but it was all very lovely. The apartment was independent and probably the biggest we had in Mexico, with a living room, kitchenette and a nice bathroom with a lot of water pressure. The room was confortable (though sometimes slightly hard to cool down, but now this is Merida in summer!), the 2nd-floor terrasse awesome to relax after an intense day in the big city, and the swimming pool was more than a bonus - a relief!
The whole house is decorated with love and taste, and both hosts are always here to help, with recommandations about activities and restaurants (do try la Chaya Maya!) and it was great having an early-evening chat to share experiences. We felt really welcomed.
Finally the house is amazingly located, a 10 minutes walk to everything and with a parking space fully guaranteed.
Thanks for your visit. My husband really loved the fact that you used the pool. He loves for people to enjoy their stay. Also thanks for pointing out the items in the room that are not working properly. He has fixed the toilet paper holder and we will replace the trash can. Thanks for your visit and please come back soon.
Our stay at Maria's house was excellent. We didn't actually stay in the casita, but in a fully independent home with two bedrooms, a huge kitchen, living room with cable TV, and a nice washer that really helped us after not having access to one for almost a week. The upgrade was only $100 pesos, which is under $7usd, to be paid when you arrive or before you leave. Her very nice husband, Gary, showed us to it, and it is only about a half a block away from the casita listing. We were able to walk downtown from here, as it was only about 8 blocks away. Thanks Maria and Gary. :) We definitely recommend this place.

We had a lovely time in Merida. Maria and Gary really did everything to make us feel at home and are the perfect hosts. Minor inconveniences were taken care of immediately.
We ended up in a different location then we had booked but it had more than we could have asked for.
Super quality for a super price,
thanks once again, Justa and Albert.
We didn't stay in la casita Bella de Santiago, but in an other house that they managed which was really clean and really nice. Both were great hosts, available and flexible!
